Description Paul W. Frields 2007-03-23 19:34:59 UTC
Description of problem:
If there is a hal/udev error, the modal dialogs that appear with the error
messages are hidden behind the preferences dialog.  The two affected dialogs
have the following error messages: (1) "HAL does not support power management!"
(2) "Either HAL or DBUS are not working!"

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Right-click g-p-m trayicon
2. Choose Preferences
3. Prefs dialog appears but is unusable due to hidden modals.  Sweep prefs aside
to see modals.
Actual results:

Expected results:

Agree, this sucks. This is fixed in head, but I'll backport to 2-18.

Comment 2 David Zeuthen 2007-03-23 19:59:50 UTC
IMO these dialogs just needs to be deleted.

Comment 3 Richard Hughes 2007-03-23 20:20:39 UTC
Yes, that's what I did.

Comment 4 David Zeuthen 2007-03-23 20:30:17 UTC
Oh, you ripped out the dialogs from CVS HEAD? Sweet!

Comment 5 Richard Hughes 2007-05-14 09:06:23 UTC
Yep. closing upstream. If HAL isn't running when the system is started, then 99%
of g-p-m does not work and so we just exit. Some people just want to run the
system without HAL...
